Denby Group reports record results
Denby Holdings, the Valco-owned pottery business comprising the Denby, Burleigh, Poole and Leeds potteries, has achieved a significant turnaround in performance in 2011.
The Group enjoyed its biggest ever December with sales up 8% to £4.3 million whist sales for the year were up 5% with EBITDA up 50%.
The Denby brand enjoyed a 31% increase in international sales, driven by expansion into Korea and Japan. Back at the company’s Derbyshire manufacturing base, plans are progressing to expand the existing Denby Visitor Centre to include a hotel, village inn and outdoor activity centre, creating 600 jobs.
The Group’s strong financial performance is positive news for British design and manufacturing in a challenging market.
